A suspected drug house, with a room known as the 'torture chamber,' has been demolished, according to the Martin County Sheriff's Office.

Detectives first busted the home on Wildwood Drive in February. Investigators said it contained drugs, piles of used syringes, drug paraphernalia, and a drug ledger.

Investigators say one of the rooms was described as the 'torture chamber' because users would sit in a chair and inject, smoke or ingest drugs being sold in the home.

Two people were arrested at the time.

The sheriff's office says that by working with the owner and the county they were able to get the home demolished and the area is now a vacant lot.
